How to Make a Bed for AG Mini Dolls

Mini dolls have become a hot commodity around my house lately.  I have been working on a few different projects to share.  The newest project that I have completed for the AG sized (6 inch ) mini dolls is a bed.

Items Needed: 
-box that measures around 7-8 inches long and 3 1/2 -4 inches wide.  (My box was a macaroni & cheese box.)
-a piece of cardboard that measures 6 inches tall and 4 1/2 -5 inches wide/
-hot glue gun or craft glue (remember to ask for a parent's help/permission if using hot glue.)
-duck tape
-scrap paper/newspaper for filler

Getting to Work:
Step 1:  Fill your box with the paper that you are using for stuffing/filler for the bed.
Step 2:  Glue the open end of the box closed.  Wrap the entire box in duck tape.  I did about two layers so that the words on the box were no longer visible.
Step 3:  Cut the cardboard piece to the measurements listed above.
Step 4:  Cover the piece of cardboard with duck tape.
Step 5:  Glue the Cardboard piece onto the box to create the headboard for the bed.
Goodnight Molly!

Tomorrow I will have a post on how to make simple bedding for your mini doll's bed!
